Brandon Judd is a Border Patrol Agent who serves as President of the National Border Patrol Council, representing more than 17,000 Border Patrol Agents and support staff. He brings with him more than 15 years of experience as a Border Patrol Agent and a thorough understanding of the policies affecting border security. Although he is a renown a public figure, he was mentioned in a Tweet by Donald Trump on Tuesday, November 26th which got people wondering who he is?

Judd began his career as a field agent in 1997 and five years later was assigned as a special operation mountain team leader in Naco, Arizona, a border crossing directly opposite a Mexican town of the same name. He was later stationed as an agent on the northern border, in Van Buren, Maine, and is currently posted in Montana.

In 2002, he was selected as a Special Operation Mountain Team Leader in Naco, Arizona, where he supervised the interdiction of aliens. He also served as a Field Training Officer and a Canine Officer stationed at one of the busiest border crossings in Naco, Arizona.

From 2001 to 2002, Judd was an instructor at the Border Patrol Academy. During his15-year tenure, he oversaw the implementation of numerous department policies, including changes affecting the mission-driven Mobile Response Team. He was first elected President of the Border Patrol Local in El Centro, California in 2001, and was later elected President of the largest Border Patrol Local in Tucson, Arizona in 2010, where he served a two-year term.

In March 2013, He was unanimously elected Border Patrol Council’s leader. Judd took over less than a year after former president Terence J. Bonner was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of diverting hundreds of thousands of dollars in union funds for personal use. Bonner, who’d held the post for 22 years before retiring in 2011, denied the charges, which were eventually dropped after a judge ruled law enforcement agents had exceeded the scope of the search warrant.

The Border Patrol Council has been an active investor with Judd at the helm, primarily buying and selling millions of dollars in U.S. Treasury securities, mutual funds, corporate notes and bonds, according to the annual reports. That’s a significant change from previous years when the council’s income consisted almost entirely of membership dues. The union’s total receipts were $12.3 million in 2017, the latest report available, with $7.8 million coming from the sale of investments. By comparison, the Border Patrol Council had zero investment income four years earlier.

Brandon Judd is a Staunch Supporter of President Trump

Judd has been a staunch ally since the Border Patrol Council endorsed Trump for president in late March 2016 — it’s first- endorsement of a White House candidate. He has appeared at Trump’s side in the White House briefing room.

“So, Brandon, I’ve known him from the beginning,” Trump said during a round table discussion at a McAllen Border Patrol station. “And almost before I announced, he was for my ideas and he was for us.”

At the White House, Trump introduced Judd as a friend and nodded approvingly as the union president declared that “walls work.” The impromptu appearance forced Kevin McAleenan, commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, to suddenly cancel a press conference that was about to start at the agency’s headquarters a few blocks away.

He was mentioned in a tweet by Donald Trump on Tuesday, November 26th, 2019. The tweet reads:

“When the Military rips down an old & badly broken Border Wall in an important location, & replaces it with a brand new 30 ft. high Steel & Concrete Wall, Nancy Pelosi says we are not building a Wall. Wrong, and it is going up fast. Brandon Judd just gave us great marks!
